Prestigious PGA tournaments to be played at Riverside Oaks

THE Riverside Oaks Golf Resort in Western Sydney will host three prestigious tournaments in 2014 including the NSW PGA Championship.

The PGA of Australia and the PGA Tour of Australasia announced the move this week, saying the NSW PGA Championship will make a return to the local tour after a year hiatus.

The event will take place at Riverside Oaks from 4-7 December.

David Scott, Deputy General Manager at Riverside Oaks, believes hosting some of Australia’s leading Tour Professionals is an exciting opportunity to display their recently upgraded golf facilities.

“We are looking forward to welcoming the PGA Tour of Australasia and its players to Riverside Oaks,” said Scott.

“Over the past three years our facilities have grown to include luxury accommodation, a gym, spa and our signature Bungool Restaurant. We are also excited to be opening a second 18 hole Championship course.”

“This year the Professionals will compete on the original Gangurru Course which has also undergone major redevelopment and will be a fitting test.”

Riverside Oaks Golf Resort has a proud history of hosting PGA Tour of Australasia tournaments having staged the Australian PGA Championship (1988, 1989, 1990) and the NSW PGA Championship (2007 and 2008).

The other events announced for the resort are the NSW State Qualifying for the PGA Professionals Championship and the PGA Trainees for the NSW/ACT Trainee Championship (1st – 4th July).
